    Hello fellow Loungers. I apologize if there is already a thread on these, but anyway...
    Show us your Bulova wrist watches, vintage or new!
    This one's mine.

    I've always been a big fan, as was my grandfather whose Bulova I just recently inherited as a wedding gift.

    Here is one I wear on a regular basis: IMG_20140131_104303_518.jpg

    Currently I'm wearing a stainless Bulova Aerojet automatic with date, from 1967.

    Beautiful :)
     
  4. A few useful things for Bulova watch collectors that I have found in my own collecting of such:

    There are also date odes on the cases from 1950 onward:

    You can accurately figure out exactly what year watch you have by referencing both codes.

    Thank you Luftwaffles and Jamespowers. If you have a collection of anything, you should have pictures and serial numbers if that applies to what you collect in order to prove they are yours in the case of unforeseen circumstances where they are stolen or damaged through no fault of your own. I've had a couple of vintage vehicles stolen and the thief didn't have to prove they were his, but I had to prove they were mine in order to get what was left of them back.

    I've had the Bulova on the left in this photo for quite a while and thought it was the Bulova "La Fayette" model. It's a 1929. Then recently I acquired the one on the right and now I think it's the "La Fayette" model. It's a 1931. Both have the 10AN 15 jewel movement. It's a never ending search trying to ID these vintage Bulovas.

    This is a 1930 ad for the "La Fayette" model.
